COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, bright and sparkling with a fine and creamy head. Deliciously fragrant thanks to a slight hint of fine hops. Delicate flavour, mellow, perfect as aperitif.

martjoobolut (789) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 07.08.2014. Pours murky dark golden with white head. The head stays. Aroma is fresh fruits, apples, and spices. Taste is sweet, fruity, wheat, and spices. Finish is rather sour wheat with some alcohol burn; bitterness is very mild. Overall: ok, but nothing special.

Douberd (2335) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2014
330 ml stubby bottle, into a tulip glass. Abv 6.3% Slighty hazy golden orange colour on the body, with a snow-white tall head sitting on top, thick, with average retention, leaving spots of lacing around the glass. Aroma of malts, peaches, belgian yeast. Taste is typical belgian ale with stone fruits, yeast, sugar. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent beer, exactly what one expects.

Bottle 0.33L. Hazy, deep golden body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with a fair lacing; low density of small particles. Moderate malty aroma (grains, light caramel) with notes of spices, some sugar and light fruits (banana). Moderate sweet flavour with light-to-moderate bitter note in the finish. Light-to-medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 6.3%. Straw aroma, white bread, chalk. Almost clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is spicy, yeasty, chalky, citric, watery. Rather thin mouthfeel. Weak and boring for the style.

Bamsen78 (3224) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, flowers and hops. Sweetish flavour of fruit, with floral touches and bitter notes of hops. Rough and bitter aftertaste. Nothing special, quite chalky, but OK.

PeterZD (9) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014 does not count
Nice yellow color with thick white head. Strong carbonation. Nice and refreshing, but flavor is a bit plain. Good beer, but nothing more.
